[image]Mount Ararat, Turkey - Volcanoes, landslides, cultural history Noah's Ark - NASA/JPL/NGA
Mount Ararat in easternmost Turkey has been the site of several searches for the remains of Noah's Ark. The two volcanic peaks here are Great Ararat, Turkey's tallest mountain; and Little Ararat to its left. Visualizations of satellite imagery can be combined with elevation models to reveal volcanic hazards such as landslides, leading to disaster prevention through improved land use planning.

[image]Fires in Turkey's Adana Region - Image courtesy Jesse Allen, based on data from the at NASA GSFC
In the Adana region of Turkey, many fires continue to burn. The fires were detected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite on June 18, 2003, and are marked with red dots in this image. In the high-resolution image, dark brown burn scars are visible around the fires. Sensor: Aqua/MODIS.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this usual view of Turkey nearly completely covered in snow on January 29, 2006. The Mediterranean nation usually enjoys mild, wet winters, with snow confined to the mountainous interior, but January 2006 brought unusual weather to much of Asia and Europe. A strong jet stream channeled Arctic air south, leaving Europe and Asia in a deep freeze...

[image]Ancient Troy : Image of the Day - NASA -- Image processing by Robert Simmon. Data copyright Space Imaging.
Ancient Troy was once a mythical city, known only through the text of Homer's Iliad. In 1870, however, the German archeologist Heinrich Schlieman discovered the ruins of Troy (and several cities above and beneath it) in northwest Turkey. He located the city by scrutinizing the text of the Iliad, and laboriously exploring the area on foot. Modern scientists and archeologists use high technology such as satellite imagery to aid their search for ancient historical sites...

[image]Fires in Turkey's Adana Region - Image courtesy Jeff Schmaltz, NASA GSFC
Dozens of fires were detected in the Adana region of Turkey on June 15, 2003, by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite. The fires have been marked with red dots in this true-color image. The Adana region is a low-lying coastal area ringed by the Taurus Mountains to the north and the Nur Mountains, covered in green vegetation, to the east. Because this region is one of the most agriculturally productive in the whole country, it is likely these fires are ...

The deep blue lake on the left is Turkey’ Lake Van. The lake is 120 kilometers long and 80 kilometers wide. It is fed by mountain streams, but has no outlet except evaporation. This has allowed salts and minerals to build in the lake to the point that only one species of fish can sur...

Mount Ararat (16,940 feet, 5165 m) is the largest volcano in Turkey. Although not currently active, its most recent eruption has probably been within the last 10,000 years. It is located in extreme northeastern Turkey, near the borders with Iran and Armenia. Southwest of the main peak lies Little Ararat (12,877 feet, 3896 m).

Living things that can make their own food -- autotrophs -- are the basis for all food webs. On land the most important autotrophs are plants; in the ocean, the major autotrophs are phytoplankton: microscopic algae, bacteria, and protists that use chlorophyll and other light-harvesting pigments to capture sunlight for photosynthesis. When phytoplankton populations get large enough, their pigments color the surface waters of oceans, seas, and lakes with shades of brown, green, or turquoise...
